Best road car Lotus has ever made :wub:

It looks like Mr Pits prefers to take his off road. ;) 

 

The new Lotus SUV after all... :rofl:

I can say that the splitter is ideally placed for keeping your lawn short. However the MPSC2s are as utterly hopeless off-road as you might expect. That was actually a grass landing strip so very flat but it was quite an adventure getting it back onto the road again.... I'd strongly advise avoiding fields altogether at this time of year!

Can you imagine the mess that front splitter would be in after a trip into the kitty litter?


I'll get around to it at some point.

Even though it’s a favourite local spot for photos, I shan’t be going back there until Spring!

Looks stunning, the 430 seems to look amazing in any colour, can not say that for many cars.

Another Esprit Sport 300 moment?

Needed to be really at the price but I think the similarities are stark. Big price increase. Modest power increase. Wider tyres. Radical, race inspired aero package. High spec suspension. Race seats. Benchmark power steering. Both just under 1300kg. Both limited to less than 70 cars. Both built for corner speed.

Only 400 miles in so far but my feeling is that Lotus have produced another landmark car here. The ride is fantasticly fluid given the oh so flat cornering, it really is something else.

 

Trevor.

@hml_xy congrats!!! Stunning car!! From the picture above it looks like you bought it were I bought mine a couple years ago. 

I am from Düsseldorf as well and drive a matt black EX460 btw. 

Is the GT430 going to be your daily? Are you planning to take it on track? I am on track regularly a couple times a year... 

Cheers

Norbert

Very nice! 

I don’t know of any GT430 Sports in the UK yet, at least on the Autobahn you might be able to use the extra top speed!

many congratulations 

:clap:

Hi there, neighbour! Might have seen you driving around a few months ago. :)

I´m not really a track guy (hence the "Sport"), but it will be more of a weekend toy for B-roads and trips. 
And yes, I bought in Wuppertal - most likely the dealer you had mind. Can´t say anything bad about the guys so far. Really really good customer experience. Had my F-Type there as well for a few years for service and tires.

All other, thanks for the kind words! I seriously can´t wait.
